|The Piccolo is a dinky little two-up
two-down caff set right next to the all time classic Copper Grill
in Eldon St EC2 (just behind Liverpool St station.) Apart from
its inviting exterior sign, the real glory of the Piccolo lies
underneath the main sandwich shop in the compact basement cafe
known only to breakfasting local office drones and a few plucky
insiders. The rosewood seats, chalet lights, half-timbered walls
and tiny arched alcoves make for an intimate, private eating
space pleasantly tucked away from the soiling crush of the City.
The multi-coloured Formica table tops are a particular joy.
